Okanagan College: CanFlip conference: conversations on teaching and learning
CanFlip conference: conversations on teaching and learning
The idea is uncomfortably simple. Take the normal classroom-homework equation and flip it on its head. Invite students to use recorded lectures when and if they need to, courtesy of technology. They can watch a second time if they want. They can rewind, review, fast-forward. When the students are in the classroom the time can be put to better use to further explore and understand, both with their teacher and fellow students. This is the idea behind the flipped classroom, an instructional movement that has been gaining momentum around the world in recent years. CanFlip14, planned for June 19-20th in Kelowna, is a chance for practitioners to share their experiences, journeys, challenges and successes while using the flipped classroom model.
